    I recorded a silly song about my addiction to chips and Doritos (especially the Tandoori flavor back then) a few years ago...

    http://www.musitards.com/MP3/2007/croustillomaniaque.mp3

    Roughly translated lyrics:

    CHIP-O-MANIAC

    For decades
    I've been invaded
    By a vital need
    If not visceral

    The salty taste
    Makes me go crazy

    I want fat
    I want trans
    I want gras

    Chip-o-maniac
    I must resist
    Chip-o-maniac
    Shit, it's tough as hell


    When a craving shows up
    I'm like an animal
    I search all the cupboards
    All the drawers

    Damn the healthy stuff
    I want some

    I want fat
    I want trans
    I want gras

    Chip-o-maniac
    I must resist
    Chip-o-maniac
    Shit, it's tough as hell


    (solo)

    Chip-o-maniac
    I must resist
    Chip-o-maniac
    Shit, it's tough as hell


    At the beginning of the year
    I decided to fast
    But after 40 days
    It became overwhelming

    Doritos Tandoori
    Baby here I am

    A handful
    A mouthful
    A bag

    Chip-o-maniac
    My mental is getting slacker
    Chip-o-maniac
    Potatoes are so good


    Chip-o-maniac
    Get out of the way
    Chip-o-maniac
    Head first in the bag
